The Four Pillars to Our Inclusive Excellence Strategy

Our culture

Make a college commitment to Inclusive Excellence by creating an intentional culture where we hold ourselves accountable for living our values, celebrating differences and inclusion.

Our people

Understand what inclusion means and feels like to our faculty, staff and students to ensure our college stakeholders feel valued, welcome and invited to make an impact.

Our community

Engage in the business community by offering resources and leadership to help increase diversity and inclusion throughout Treasure Valley.

Our work

Set a tone at the top in the College of Business and Economics that failure to improve our diversity and inclusion impacts is not an option and then hold ourselves accountable to transparent reporting and continuous improvement based on stakeholder feedback.
